What is the country coming to when drug dealers are becoming more prevalent in frat houses? Drugs have been a continuous problem for decades. The problem is that instead of increasing the legislation to ban drugs, liberals are looking to decrease legislation.
Oregon has even voted to stop criminalizing drug possession – meth, marijuana, cocaine, and other hard drugs are allowed in small quantities. That’s the law that just passed – and it’s becoming more and more common throughout the Pacific Northwest.
Forget about stopping drug use – it seems as though the liberals want to promote it.
Hardened drug dealers were found in the frat houses of North Carolina. And if Congress doesn’t start tightening up on drug laws around the country, this is going to be more mainstream.
So, what is going on in North Carolina?
There were drug deals happening at frat houses across the campus of the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. Many of the drug deals were high volume, and Orange County Sheriff Charles Blackwood said he’s never seen anything like it in the 40 years he’s been in law enforcement.
This wasn’t just a few college students doing some cocaine to get through midterms.
21 people were ultimately charged with drug trafficking – and the ring spread across three universities. Hundreds of kilograms of drugs were being moved. It included cocaine as well as narcotics such as Xanax. Apparently, it’s been going on for years, and sales were well over $1.5 million.
The federal courts have gotten involved because it’s not just single users. U.S. Attorney Matthew G.T. Martin of the Middle District of North Carolina explains that they’re dealing with “hardened drug dealers.”
Of the 21 charged, many are current and former students from UNC, Duke, and Appalachian State University. The universities have pledged to help the prosecutors in any way possible.
A spokesperson for Duke University explains that they will respond with their disciplinary process. The spokesperson made it clear that the use and distribution of drugs are not only illegal but also against the school’s code of conduct.
Yes, it is against the law. Yet, it seems that some states across the country have forgotten this. They’re willing to turn a blind eye to legalities while allowing people to be in possession of drugs.
When drug trafficking and possession no longer becomes illegal, it’s almost the same as legalizing it. Students in college can start a career of becoming a hardened drug dealer – and that’s not what the country needs right now.
The case in North Carolina has been gaining momentum since it started at the end of 2018. It was identified that there were illegal drug sales on the UNC-Chapel Hill campus. The university has suspended recognition of the three fraternities where deals were happening. The International Fraternity of Phi Gamma Delta has also temporarily suspended the chapter in question.
In North Carolina, there has been a fairly conservative approach taken still in regard to how drug use is viewed. Marijuana is illegal for medical or recreational use. The frat house investigation discovered that hundreds of pounds of marijuana were being sold along with a large menu of other drugs ranging from narcotics to steroids to cocaine.
Much of the supplies were coming from California – cocaine was being mailed and marijuana was being shipped by car. Some supplies were even sent with money orders through Western Union.
This is a major bust – and one that can, hopefully, get people the help they need. It’s likely that the frat operations resulted in a number of drug addictions.
What if this had happened at a university in Oregon, though? Would legislators turn a blind eye and say that it was okay?
If Congress doesn’t start coming together immediately to put an end to illegal drugs on the street, the problem is going to get worse. What happened in North Carolina frat houses could easily spread to every university across the country.
